Playing In The Glitter!

Today I decided it was time to play in the glitter!  Sometimes I feel like such a kid when I have
all of my craft goodies spread out on my desk. 
I mean, think about it.  Us paper
crafters play with glue and tape and markers and paints and paper… just like we
did when we were in kindergarten.  It
feels very cathartic to be surrounded by the same items you were surrounded by
in your childhood only now the quality of our craft items is WAY better!!

So I broke out my Glitter Ritz Glitter by Elizabeth Crafts
to play with today.  I made it tutorial
about using her glitter a while back and you can find it HERE.  The whole cupcake panel is covered in glitter
and then has been colored with markers. 
I took the photo outside in natural light, so you can’t really see the
glittery effect like you can when I take it under lights, but trust me, it’s
there, and it’s sparkly!  I cut out a
circle with my Silhouette Cameo and used Peel-Off Stickers for the cupcake,
stars, and silver border.  I matted
everything in black card stock.

On the inside of the card I used the happy birthday
sentiment from the Mark’s Finest Papers stamp set called Lighthouses.  I stamped the sentiment in Versa Mark ink,
and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, so that it would match the
silver Peel-Off Stickers.
Have you ever felt like you’ve completely reverted back to
your childhood when you have out your markers and your scissors and your glue, or
is it just me?

Happy Scrapping!
